Publisher Description

A famous surgeon and a female firefighter struggle to make a life together despite how their worlds clash.

At thirty-five, Julie “JJ” Jensen is a star in the Crystal City fire department. She runs circles around other firefighters. When her talent leads to a fast-tracked promotion, she loses her boyfriend and gains a crew who resent her. Their first call is a hospital fire, where she saves the lives of both a doctor and his patient in the midst of open-heart surgery.

Dr. Nick Barrows immediately gravitates to JJ. She risked life and limb to save him and she’s easy on the eyes. When he pursues her, JJ is having none of it. The Sisters of Fire encourage her to give Nick a chance. But they live in opposite worlds: hers is fire houses and beer, his is galas and champagne.

Even though they grow closer and closer sharing their experiences, having quiet meals and sizzling sex at night, can she ever see herself permanently living his lifestyle or will she subject them both to what becomes biting loss?

Equal Partners

ARC for honest review with no compensation

Equal Partners is book 4 in the Sisters of Fire series by Kathryn Shay and while each book is a standalone, reading them in order gives you a better understanding of each woman, her background, and the camaraderie between them.

Up next is Julie “JJ” Jensen, firefighter who is fast tracked promoted to captain, loses her firefighter boyfriend who couldn’t handle the promotion and is struggling to gain the respect with her new crew. While they respond to a hospital fire she ends up being the one who helps save a heart patient in the middle of surgery and the doctor, Nick Burrows performing the surgery.

Being from two different worlds can these two find the happiness they are looking for? Lots of tension, insecurities, support from family and friends, chemistry and wanting to be equal partners in their relationship.

Thoroughly enjoyed!

This fourth installment of the Sisters of Fire series is about JJ. She is a Captain in the fire department on the fast track and often resented. Nick is a heart surgeon. They meet through interesting circumstances. Can they overcome their background differences to find their happy? These books often reflect real life struggles for couples. Their sweet story is another success by author Kathryn Shay. Love this series.

Great book

I was hooked on page one!! I am loving this series!! Each book gives an in-depth look at one of the Sisters of Fire while giving a chance to catch up on what is going on with the others. JJ Jensen becomes the captain for Engine 2 and her first call is a fire at the hospital where she meets and has to save Dr. Nick Barrows and his patient while he is doing surgery. When he comes to the fire station to thank the crew, he becomes more intrigued with JJ. Before they find their happy ending, they have to work through some obstacles. JJ comes from a law enforcement family and Nick comes from a wealthy family of doctors and lawyers. The other Sisters of Fire help JJ see that she is good enough to fit into Nick’s world. I am anxiously awaiting the last two books in this series.
